What is a deductible?

A deductible is the predetermined amount you must pay before the remaining eligible expenses are covered by the insurer. In other words, the deductible is the amount that remains at your expense in the event of a claim.

When is the best time to take out a coverage?

Most insurers impose a minimum waiting period of 48 hours when the policy is taken out after arrival in Canada, or when a previous policy expires. Any illness occurring during this waiting period, as well as related expenses even if incurred once the waiting period is over, are not covered.

We recommend that you choose your insurance coverage before you arrive in Canada. That way, you’ll be able to anticipate any delays in activating your coverage.

What is a pre-existing health condition?

A pre-existing condition is an illness, injury or health problem that existed prior to the effective date of insurance, for which you may or may not have sought medical attention, or for which you have exhibited signs and symptoms.
